I need more stars! What can you say about this place - they say that life on earth started right here. Amazing animals everywhere and the African Veldt stretching to the horizon.

The Ngorongoro is the whole package: wildlife, luxury lodges, anthropological history, gorgeous landscape, and interesting geology. The animals live in a kind of bubble and are better fed and more habituated than animals in many other parks. It would be getting four stars from me but the park fees and gratuitous manner in which they're dealt out is frustrating and a common theme in Tanzania. If you go with a tour company, chances are you won't even notice this, though.

There is a certain serenity here that no words could describe. Time seems to have disappeared all together here. The Maasais who live here still carry on a way of life that they have known for ages and have carried on without too much interference from the outside world. Generations of living creatures born, roam, and die right within the crater. It is so amazing to find places in the world where nothing has to change...it is perfect the way it is.

I cannot express how amazing this place is via words, but I will certainly try. I went on a full day safari and wished I could have stayed longer. After seeing lions, elephants, and giraffes in zoos, you would think it would be the same thing...IT'S NOT! We drove around and seeing these animals in the wild just takes your breath away. They are beautiful, a little scary and totally enthralling.
The only time I actually felt in any danger was when we ate lunch, decided to sit under a big beautiful tree and wondered why everyone else was eating in their jeeps. After being dive bombed at by giant birds who literally stole every piece of food off of my plate, I would suggest staying in the jeep for lunch!
Spotting the animals isn't difficult and you are almost guaranteed to see one of everything. Since the crater is such an enclosed area it gives you almost unprecedented access to so many large and small East African wildlife. Wildebeasts, lions, zebras, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, just to name a few. Charge your camera, be prepared to fight for a spot in the pop-top roof and be amazed. Would go back in a hearbeat!

I have traveled all over the world and say this with 100% honesty and conviction: Ngorongoro Crater is the single most amazing place I have ever been. Nothing can prepare you for the first vista of this earthly Eden. High wildlife diversity and stunning vegetation make a crater-floor safari one of the most memorable experiences a person can have. It is very difficult for me to describe the spiritual awakening I felt at the crater, but perhaps you will feel it too when you make the absolutely necessary visit.Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers
